Jason McCoy Inc. is pleased to present After Paradise, a thematic extension of the previous group exhibition Galaxy & Cosmos (December 8, 2010 – January 31, 2011), which explored artists’ takes on transformation and the inter-dependence of all elements.
After Paradise takes this contemplation one step further. Instead of focusing on works that evoke transitional states, the works assembled here reflect visions of a post-transformative “destination.” Presenting a selection of modern and contemporary paintings, sculptures, and works on paper, the exhibition will feature works by James Brooks, Yvonne Estrada, Sidney Geist, Glenn Goldberg, Arshile Gorky, Damien Hirst, Lee Krasner, Christiane Löhr, Marci MacGuffie, Bryan Osburn, Milton Resnick, David Row, Richard Stankiewicz, Tamara Zahaykevich and Balint Zsako.
Ranging from painting, drawing, to sculpture and installation, the works on display manifest as dreamscapes – either through abstraction or the ethereal mélange of representational elements. While differing significantly in stylistic approaches and aesthetics, the assembled works make up a cohesive group, which questions what could linger behind the horizon line. What could this place, these alternate spheres look like that to some might signify the end of the world as we know it and to others a mere starting point for our imagination?
